    From whom did you buy the door rubbers from and what is the specific part number/code for them?. Thanks.

    Regarding the door seals, Rubberite has just - month or so ago - opened a satellite branch in Hennopspark, off Jakaranda st. The main branch is in PtaW, in the street previously known as Mitchell. They are a subsidiary of Hudson Rubber, who actually designs the dies and extrudes the profiles.

    Very good selection of automotive rubber, for both doors and windows.

    Comes on reels, sold per m. Noticeably, average price of almost everything is R38/m.

    In the early hours of this morning I was lying awake, (we have a 7month old baby) thinking about all the aspects that are involved in building something like we doing here. There are so many little things to think about that I actually find myself feeling a bit overwhelmed at times. If it's not wood then it's steel then its paint then my mind hops back and I start thinking about hinges nuts, bolts, screws, locks. Then my mind hops over to electrics and for just a second I'm thinking lights wires then we back at the doors thinking sealing. Then I look over to my clock and I see the time, it's time to get up and go to work.

    I just want to say I respect those who have successfully tackled projects like this before.

    This was like reading about myself....I am also going through exactly the same problem.

    Overthinking every single thing, until the early morning. Jumping from one item to the next, foxing a problem in my head and creating the next one.

    Getting back to naming this teardrop and seeing that it is small (except for the wheels)
    I though atoms, then molecules, so I made something like below. Calling it the Nano
    and seeing that we going to go explore let make it NANO Explore.
